Leeds pledge to keep Delph

05 Nov 2008 - 14:51:14

Leeds United chairman Ken Bates claims the club has no intention of selling Fabian Delph after revealing he rejected a bid from Newcastle United for the teenage midfielder.

Delph, 18, has attracted the interest of the Premier League club after starring for Leeds and breaking into the England Under-19 squad this season.

"I'm still amazed at a recent offer Newcastle made for Fabian," Bates told Yorkshire Radio.

"I won't tell you the content of the fax we sent back but it did end the conversation.

"It's inevitable if the team does well, predatory upper league clubs will try their luck without success.

"Fabian Delph will be moving to Premier League, but we hope he'll be moving with us via the Championship.

"He signed a four-year contract until 2012 and he doesn't want to go anywhere."
